Rocket League Championship Series Season 6 is beginning in two weeks. In order for you to get ready, we’ll take a look at the rosters for all teams and see which teams added new life to their team, what teams released players and what possibly made them be released.

NORTH AMERICA

Two new teams join the ranks of the RLCS in the North American division. Allegiance and FlyQuest both won their respective promotion playoff matches to be promoted into the RLCS from the Rival Series. FlyQuest added the former Genesis player Braden “Pluto” Schenetzki to the team as a substitute. FlyQuest and Allegiance are both continuing with their same lineup from last season to continue to compete this season.

After a heavy team break-up, Evil Geniuses released Robert “Chrome” Gomez from their team and signed former Ex-Dignitas teammate Reed “Chicago” Willen. This new addition sets up Evil Geniuses to possibly repeat their Top Four North American finish from the previous season and potentially even get into a higher position.

Former Ghost Gaming player Matt “Matt” Dixon was released from his contract in order for Ghost Gaming to sign RLRS standout from Spacestation Gaming, Michael “Memory” Moss. Matt now moves onto Rogue as a substitute.

Rogue continued to make moves in regards to improving their team. According to his former teammate Jacob “Jacob” McDowell, throughout Season Five, Trevor “Insolences” Carmody was not a class-act of a teammate. Rogue, therefore, released Insolences from his contract and signed up-and-comer from the RLRS, George “Joro” Kolev.

G2 eSports added the former Counter Logic Gaming player Jesus “Mijo” Gutierrez to fill the role as their new substitute.

NRG eSports and Cloud9 both did not make any changes from the previous season. NRG and Cloud9 both finished in the Top Four of the North American division of the RLCS. While NRG was one win away from winning the championship of Season Five.

EUROPE

In the European division, Team EnVyUs is now the classic team, WeDemGirlz after EnVyUs decided to separate from the roster. Into RLCS Season 6, Otto “Metsanauris” Kaipiainen is added to the team after David “Deevo” Morrow was let go. Both Jordan “EyeIgnite” Stellon and Remco “remkoe” den Boer remain on the team. 

CompLexity Gaming added former RLCS Season 2 Finals winner Marius “gReazymeister” Ranheim to the team to replace Metsanauris and to still compete for a Top Four spot in the European Division.

Team Dignitas added Joni “JHZER” Humaloja to be the substitute for their current championship run for a three-peat.

As discussed last week, PSG eSports released Dan “Bluey” Bluett and added Emil “fruity” Moselund to be the third man of the roster in regards to Blueys’ comments towards his teammates.

Renault Vitality added two new players to their team. They added fifteen-year-old Kyle “Scrub Killa” Robertson and Florian “Neqzo” Esnault as their substitute. They removed Sandro “Freakii” Holzwarth to make room for Scrub Killa. Scrub Killa has had history playing with both Vitality players: Philip “Paschy90” Paschmeyer and Victor “Fairy Peak” Locquet.

The former team of Servette Geneva eSports, Kevin “Skyline” Carvalho, Joseph “MummiSnow” Salameh and Alex “Alex161” Ernst were promoted to the RLCS European division after they won their promotion matches against exceL Esports and Team Secret. After all players left the franchise, Skyline and Alex161 added former Team Secret player, Maik “Tigreee” Hoffmann to replace MummiSnow in order to try and build better chemistry between all three players. They now sport the name of mousesports for the RLCS Season 6.

The final team to discuss is Fnatic who won their matches in the promotion playoffs to stay in the RLCS for another season. Their team remains mostly the same from the previous season with Nicolai “Maestro” Bang and Nicolai “Snaski” Vistesen Andersen continuing to be on the team. They replaced Alexander “Sikii” Karelin with former Servette Geneva player, MummiSnow. This move should be a helpful addition to a team trying to get out of the last place finish they had previously.

All in all, a lot of teams added pieces that could help them contend for a playoff spot for the RLCS Season Six Championship series. I feel that WeDemGirlz helped themselves by adding Metsanauris to their team to reinvigorate their play and continue to be in the Top Four of their division. I also feel that Rogue and PSG both helped their teams by getting rid of unwanted distractions to their teams in Bluey and Insolences both after having lackluster years prior.

I am Joey Bruno from the great state of Tennessee. I just recently graduated and am now living the dreadful life of adulthood. I have played video games almost daily since the release of the great Playstation. I am a huge fan of the best football team in America, the New York Jets. This great team depresses me everyday with their choices and their own play, but I still love them somehow. There are a few great moments during my fandom, but mostly bleek depression. I became a Jets fan because my parents were born in New York, and then my father has grown up with the Jets, and passed that down to me, and let me know “it’ll be a depressing life.” I tend to enjoy single player games, but i enjoy one multiplayer game, Rocket League. Rocket League has been a hobby of mine used to hang out with friends, to scream at my phone screen during RLCS, but also continually learn how bad I am at it once I play online, or with friends. If you’re bad at doing something, just write about other people doing it!
